ENA Non-coding Product

The Non-coding product is the main feed source of sequence data for RNAcentral. It contains nucleotide sequences of non-coding features annotated in the EMBL nucleotide sequence database. The data are distributed in a flat-file format, similar to that of the EMBL database, but with each entry representing a single feature and with the sequence of only that entry.
